Subject: Re: [regrep] Shorter URNs proposal
Hmmm - there again - if you store the URN prefix separately - then you can just use an alias to it anyway. That way you save the 25Mb regardless of if the URN is some monster long 20K string, or just 10 bytes - since all you store is a short pointer to the alias... and better yet - if it changes - you just update the alias once - not every occurence everywhere...

Note: Hope Karl can provide us with some comments here. <Farrukh> I further propose that we remove the spec component of the URN (rim or rs). If we agree with my proposal the locator URN changes as follows... Old: urn:oasis:names:tc:ebxml-regrep:3.0:rim:RegistryObject:locator New: urn:oasis:regrep:RegistryObject:locator Notice the space savings is 25 MB for a million objects. </Farrukh> Maybe we should revisit a need for full URNs in places like slot names as in the example above? Or, perhaps we should look at some other URN options?
